Paint Splatter Masking Tutorial

I’ve had requests asking for this tutorial so i decided i should get one done asap. I am using photoshop elements 13 but most versions of photoshop and probably other photo editors can do the same thing- its a lot simpler than it looks to make these edits!

1. Find an image of a paint splatter and save it. i’m going to use this one:

2. Open up photoshop and create a blank transparent canvas. size doesn’t matter- just make sure there is enough space for the splatter to fit. go to File/Place and place the splatter so it fits the canvas. I used a transparent one, but if your image is not transparent you can get away with using the magic wand tool to remove the white areas.

3. Now place the image you want to put inside the paint splatter. i am going to use this picture of my boi jack. it’s not a very good pic but i am using it for convenience as it was already transparent. if yours has a background you’ll need to mask it out and remember to apply the mask by right-clicking the mask layer or else it will fuck up later. place it somewhere in the splatter with some part, probably the head or an arm or shoulder, sticking out. the parts you want inside the splatter will be gone soon.

3. hide the layer you were just on and return to the splatter layer. get the magic wand tool and select the area outside the splatter. right-click the selection and press ‘invert selection’ (this varies depending on your foreground and background settings)

4. Go back to the other layer and put a mask on it. it will take on the shape of the splatter as soon as you do this. but now the head is chopped off! easy to fix!! just click the mask layer, get the brush tool and brush in the areas you want to have popping out of the splatter.

I hope i learnt yous a thing! if you have any questions please send an ask my way and i will try to help! if you want to know how to recolour hair and generally anything then here is my recolour tutorial.
